I use computational neuroscience techniques to model the organisational principles of structural and functional brain development in childhood and adolescenceli. In particular, I'm interested in how these principles change over time, vary across phenotypes, and their underlying mechanisms, such as the relationship with genes. To do so, I use large-scale multi-omic data sets, including the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) study, the Centre for Attention, Learning, and Memory (CALM), and the Nathan-Kline Institute (NKI). Code for existing projects can be found at https://github.com/AlicjaMonaghan.
My work is supervised by Prof. Duncan Astle (Cambridge), with Prof. Camilla Nord (Cambridge) as Advisor. I am funded by Corpus Christi College, the ESRC Doctoral Training Programme, and the Alan Turing Institute.
